so that means only gomez and pleks can play against top lines.
also keep in mind that these two fan favorite
look good because JM plays them against opponent's bottom lines
take off your homer glasses, and i know it hurts to admit it, but gomez cannot be replaced with either of them - yet.
So what do we do? Continue to lose with Gomez on the ice more than anyone else?
Gomez has already proven that he will give us nothing. No offense. Lots of turnovers and penalties.
Eller and DD have a lot greater upside than Gomez. Why? We know what Gomez offers. And we have seen what Eller and DD can do WHEN GIVEN ICE TIME.
Martin is a failure here just like he has been everywhere else he has coached. Last year was a magical ride compliments of Halak. If Martin stays on, we will forever be fighting for places 6 through 8 and we will continue to be the softest team in the League that lacks offensive power.
Time to go Jacques. I wish you well somewhere......as long as it isnt here.
